Dr. Herrick’s research interest is in using a human factors approach to improve delivery room care and resuscitation. Her work focuses on using video review to study neonatal resuscitation and intubation. She is currently completing a project to identify and classify common flow disruptions during neonatal resuscitation, which will inform future interventional studies designed to optimize the delivery room environment. For her master's thesis, she is studying the effects of delivery room policy change on neonatal outcomes. Dr. Herrick also studies intubation practice and safety using the NEAR4NEOS database, and is actively involved in QI research to decrease adverse tracheal intubation associated events
